Too Much Radio Talk

011612_1823_Solitude1.jpgThis morning Ellen asked me to say thanks for breakfast and I did say a prayer but instead of saying “amen” at the end I said “over.” That started me to thinking that I might be talking on the radio too much. But next to fishing and gardening I love to talk on the radio. Radio propagation has not been very good lately. However, If one gets on the radio at the right time of day he/she is virtually assured of working some kind of dx. I have been talking to lots of Australians and New Zeelanders lately and a few Japaneese. This morning there was a Japaneese station on the fourty meter band just about daylight and he had a good signal but I never did work him.

Cypress Trees

I  always get a feeling when I look at cypress trees because they have been around a long time and a lot like the turtles of the plant world.

Eating seafood at a Gradys Restaurant

image

This is a nice little seafood restaurant and they have very good food! I think it’s because the way they cook it. When they bring your plate it looks like there’s not much on your plate there but before you get through eating it you just about have to leave part of it. Those are jumbo shrimp to state an oxymoron. It is the shrimp are just about as big as small chicken drumsticks!
Don’t take very many of them to get your appetite gone. In  fact I always tell them that eating there always kills my appetite!

Mount Carmel Primitive Baptist Church building

image

This is the old Mount Pisga Primitive Baptist Church used to meet. It is a beautiful old building and they’ve done a lot of work on it recently to restore it. It’s a good thing to restore some of these old buildings into see the history that went on there. When has to use his magination to to see in their minds eye what might have happened there. But lots of preaching and lots of singing went on there. Good bit of Sacred Harp singing was conducted there also. Well so fasola was conducted there. The old trees around the building have listened to many a sound coming from there! Imagine a lot of old time preaching happened there. Around coffee springs it is one of my favorite places to visit and just sit and be serene for a while as those sleeping over in the cemetery mark the ceaseless passage of time as it marches toward eternity.

Thanksgiving Day 2014 What I’m Thankful For

But the most thing I have is the things that I’m thankful for I’m thankful to God for my life. I’m thankful for the air that I breathe in the water that I drink in the food that I eat. These are basic things and we don’t miss them until we don’t have them.  These I’m very thankful for. I’m thankful for my life and my relatively good health. And I enjoy my life and go from day to day enjoying all the blessings of God and I hope I can be thankful everyday.  I’m thankful that God has blessed me in other ways! I am also thankful for my wonderful family and most of them have very good health and Ellen’s family and they have good health . Thankful for my wonderful wife and companion and friend all wrapped into one and I love her so much! I’m thankful for the time we’ve had together and thankful for the time that we’re going to have together in the future! I’m thankful for the mental capacity that I have that I’m able to think and move and have my being! That’s a wonderful thing to have your mind.
